Mexican Chocolate Beer Crepes

Crepes are one of those foods that can be made into breakfast or dessert. Even if the toppings/fillings are dessert items, they can justifiably be eaten for breakfast :)

To get adequate photos, these had to be made during the day. So fortunately for you guys, I suffered through eating these for breakfast :D

The Mexican Chocolate Stout by Copper Kettle Brewing is an incredible craft beer. This stout literally tastes like Mexican Hot Chocolate but in beer form. It has both chocolate and cinnamon on the forefront and then follows with a spicy kick from the incorporation of three Mexican chili peppers.

•2 eggs
•1/2 c milk
•3/4 c beer (Mexican Chocolate Stout)
•pinch of salt
•2 T brown or white sugar
•2 T cocoa powder
•butter (for pan)

Chocolate Beer Syrup
•1.5 oz squares unsweetened/dark chocolate (60%) (I used 3 Ghiradelli squares)

•1/3 c sugar
•1/2 t vanilla
•Pinch salt

Optional fillings/toppings: whip cream, raspberries, strawberries, powdered sugar, nutella (if using a regular stout)

The Mexican Chocolate Stout brings cinnamon and spice to these beer crepes making a delicious breakfast/dessert! If this beer is not available to you, use any chocolate stout. Then to still get a spicy kick, add a teaspoon or so of cayenne pepper to the chocolate syrup.

Making the Crepes

In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Add in the milk and beer. Add the sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Then slowly mix in the flour. If the batter doesn’t seem thin enough, add more milk or beer.

Melt some butter in a small/medium pan over medium heat. This was my first time making crepes so I checked out some YouTube videos. What ended up working best for me is after heating the pan with butter, remove the pan from the heat to add the batter (mine was so hot that I couldn’t swirl the batter around quick enough). Swirl the batter (about a 1/4 cup) to cover the bottom of the pan and then put it on the heat again.

Let it cook until batter is no longer wet and then flip. Cook until the other side is done and then remove.

For the chocolate syrup, melt the chocolate, butter and beer in a pot on the stove. Mix in the sugar, salt and vanilla.

  4. mmmm crepes! Did I mention I was hungry? I found crepes and beer to be a great combination.

  5. You put beer in your crepes and in chocolate syrup!!!!!!! This is why you rock, Lilly Sue. Hoo boy. Will save the crepes for a special occasion, but making that syrup today. Will go very well over that last bit of beer ice cream in the freezer. You. are. brilliant.

    On the subject of alcohol, I wanted to make sure you’d been to foodforfun’s most recent happy hour. I got the idea from Weary Chef (have seen you hanging out at her place ;-) ) and wrote up a bunch of my take on her drinks. Possible you’ve already seen it, but in case no wanted to make sure you stopped by. We’re talking Happy Hour :-)

    Always fun to read your posts.

    • Ooh that will definitely be good on the ice cream! This is a good chocolate syrup since it doesn’t have corn syrup or anything crazy :) Enjoy! Thanks Liz!

      • ‘k, with 43 (!) comments on this one, you don’t really need another BUT need to say that I made the sauce and it has changed my life ;-) Haha, but it really is that good. I think I like it better than my kids and husband :-o I couldn’t stop licking the saucepan, spatula, etc. Yum. Yum. It will make an appearance at foodforfun very soon, so wait for the ping and check it out!

      • That is awesome Liz! So glad you like! And if you could only get your hands on the Mexican chocolate stout you would be even more set with an additional spicy kick :)

        Sorry I have been slow to check out others blogs…having a bit if a rough week and lacking motivation. Need to catch up on reading soon!

    • Yep, pretty much! This stout is ridiculous! Unfortunately they are only just now (I think) bottling so it will be a while before it gets out of the state….but try with another yummy stout :)
